This would mean a big restoration project, disbursed through meadow. •Wilderness setting: hard to access.

Meadow flows were over bankful and 90-95% meadow surface has water. Water input from main channel in addition to many tributaries from cliff faces and ground water discharge from slopes. •Hydrogeomorphic types: riparian low gradient, dry, discharge slope.
